The saga continues… (T-5)

Warbonnet Blackbird

The hammock saga continues. It looks like the repairs won’t be done in time for me to start next Wednesday, so I ordered a new hammock today. The old one will then serve as a spare. I’ll let you know when the new one arrives. It’s supposed to be shipped later today overnight via USPS, although I have little faith that the postal service will get it to me overnight.

The rain is continuing here in St Louis and should be heading east in a few days. Forecast for the trail looks like highs in the upper 70’s, lows about 60 and evening showers every day. 😉

  1. I hope the hammock arrives in time. Are you getting the same model?
    BTW: I’m still cringing about the “soft tacos for bears” image. Hike safe.


    • Same model. They’ve updated the fabric slightly, but it still is a Blackbird. I am so comfortable in hammock it is insane. I probably have slept close to 100 nights in the old one.
